Thanks a whole bunch! I can't wait, as it's my first trip!

Yes, there is a bus that goes straight from Animal Kingdom to Epcot.
The only park that doesn't have other park buses that drop you off right outside the gate is the Magic Kingdom, in which case you must take the ferry or monorail to the Ticket & Transportation Center. The only buses that will drop you off outside the Magic Kingdom gate are the Disney resort buses.

Otherwise, the only big issues are if you're trying to get from any park to Downtown Disney, or from hotel to hotel.

we always stay at CR but still use the buses. But if we have an early morning ADR at a park then we cab it, to be safe and if it is EMH we cab it. one time we waiting 45 min for a bus to AK and missed half the EMH. I'm sure it was a fluke but I was ticked So if getting somewhere quick is important to us we pay the $20 for cab, worth it for us but we always take the bus back to the resort

I don't know that it's exactly helpful to understand what is going on, but if you are looking some visualization of transportation options, this is the best I've seen:

I'm pretty familiar how the system works, but I always forget little things like what direction the boats servicing the MK resorts do, and this helps me remember.

stargazertechie gave a great summary of Disney transportation. The only things we have found tricky if going to DTD from a park, or going from a resort to another resort.

Park to DTD: it works really well to take the bus to Saratoga Springs and then walking from there...or, if you have more time, taking the bus to POFQ and taking the boat from there.

Resort to resort is probably generally easiest to get a taxi.
